Defense Daily Webinar
Date: November 9, 2012
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET
As the Transportation Security Administration ramps up its rollout of the increasingly popular PreCheck Trusted Traveler program the agency is able to offer expedited checkpoint screening benefits to more travelers as they pass through airport checkpoints. TSA estimates that one million passengers will be using its PreCheck lanes monthly in 2013, that’s far more than the roughly three million that have received expedited screening since pilot testing of the program began a year ago.
PreCheck participants that go through designated lanes get the benefit of not having to divest certain items and clothing but they are subject to the same screening technologies as other passengers. So as PreCheck grows in popularity, does TSA risk creating a bottleneck at its Trusted Traveler lanes?
This Defense Daily webinar will explore the outlook for the checkpoint in light of more risk-based screening and whether the technology will remain static or evolve.
- How can expedited screening benefits be sustained without Trusted Traveler lanes becoming additional chokepoints?
- What are the implications for technology requirements?
- Will TSA need to do less screening of people and or their bags?
- What is lacking now in terms of technology?
- And has TSA been guilty of pursuing perfection at the expense of good enough?
